We're still settling down from the incredible racing that took place over the weekend in Glasgow. The guys battled hard, won a few, lost a few but came out to race another day.

We're super proud of Dominic, Joe and Billy, plus thrilled to race with our guest riders Chris Lawless and a special thanks to Matt Rotherham who stepped in and partnered with Chris for the madison time trial to take home a very respectable 4th place.

Team Star Track currently sits in 9th place overall in the Champions league!
